Pulmonary Rehab for post Covid-19 patients

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation refers to a supervised program that usually includes exercise training, health education, and breathing techniques to patients with certain lung conditions, or problems.  This may be prescribed for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, pulmonary hypertension, and most recently to help patients experiencing respiratory issues due to covid-19.

 

Pulmonary rehab can help improve the daily life of those with limited lung function. It can help patients gain strength and make it easier for them to manage daily activities. Patients may be given pulmonary rehab in a hospital or clinic or may learn physical therapy or breathing exercise to then do at home. 

 

Here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational therapy we offer treatment for different respiratory issues, including rehabilitation for post-covid patients to help them regain their pulmonary health.  Our post-covid treatments will be tailored based on the individual’s symptoms and needs but may include:

 

 

We also have occupational therapists on board that can help with energy conservation techniques, and helping patients engage safely in activities of daily living. Your therapist will make sure you participate in your treatment safely, checking your oxygen saturation levels regularly and monitoring your fatigue and having you rest as needed. 

 

To find out more about how we can assist post-covid, and with other pulmonary conditions, give us a call. Get scheduled for a consultation today!
